BOSTON COMMONS COLUMBARIUM PROPOSAL

 

PROJECT

Boston Commons Columbarium proposal   |   Collaboration with Aspinwall Partners

 

LOCATION

Boston Commons, Boston, MA

 

CLIENT

Boston Parks and Recreation Department

 

STATS

650 sf
450 urns

 

An existing masonry comfort station is restored to its noble presence and converted into a columbarium on the Boston Common. Outside, its massive stone walls symbolize permanence while its entry, upper windows and glass roof glow with light. Inside, an internal contemplation void surrounded by glass niches offers a place of rest and reflection. The niches are suspended in the space over a gravel perimeter and washed with a filtered light from above and behind.

DENNIS FAMILY BENEFIT

Every once-in-awhile we have the opportunity to break away from the norm and work on something besides buildings.  For this pro-bono project, we provided graphic design services for the Dennis Family Benefit in Chicago who was a dear friend of partner Aaron Malnarick and committed CUBE supporter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

RETHINKING PRESERVATION POSTER

As a part of of our ‘Rethinking Preservation’ project for Neutra’s Cyclorama in Gettysburg, we designed a graphic for our ‘Network’ scheme.  The graphic has been used nationally by various organizations as rallying tool to gain supporters for the preservation of modern buildings.

 

CUBEPLAY LAUNCH

cubePLAY has launched! An alternative to the cheesy play-houses that litter America’s backyards, cubePLAY is a series of architectural play structures that foster child creativity through physical and cognitive interaction. These play structures depart from traditional playhouse designs by providing a dynamic framework for imagination.

The structures are constructed from renewable redwood planks that filter light and create a rich spatial interior that allows passage through, over, and under its various levels. A perfect place for playing, napping, and doing homework, cubePLAY exposes children to the value of design through lively hands-on interaction.

RACE NIGHT!

We’re helping some friends with a poster for a fundraising event. The concept is based on turn-of-the-century racing posters and the motion studies of Eadweard Muybridge.
